Here are a few differences between blinds and shutters.

Sunroom Shutters

Interior Shutters

In contrast to blinds, shutters are joined to the window frame themself. If you’re wanting to add value to your house, Louver Shop offers quite a few gorgeous choices. A couple of the advantages of going with interior shutters include:

Sturdy and Long-Lasting

While interior shutters are more expensive to start, they can stay in your home a lifetime. We recognize our Traditional Shutters are in-demand for a reason. Many years later, we’re one of the last businesses who still supply them.

Simple Maintenance

Your Louver Shop shutters are assembled with the finest American hardwood to stand up against normal wear and tear. We also have one of the most extensive lifetime guarantees in the trade to assure your shutters stay in excellent shape.

Increased Insulation

Interior shutters are useful insulators and are an ideal choice for climate control. We apply an exclusive faux wood polymer in our LouverWood® Shutters. This component is up to three times superior at insulating than conventional wood shutters, and may help you reduce electricity expenses.

Parkland Bleached Horizontal Blinds


Blinds are the most frequently used window treatments.

Compared to shutters, they are fixed to the inner part of or above the window recess. They’re also produced in a wider selection of materials, colors and fashions than shutters.

Contemplate these things when picking between blinds and interior shutters:


Blinds are typically lower in cost than shutters, but our Hunter Douglas blinds don’t give up value for affordable interior design. And select styles are available with useful motorized operating systems you can regulate with your phone.

Light Control and Privacy

Blinds give you an incredible deal of light control and privacy, whether you want horizontal blinds or vertical blinds. Both styles protect against blinding sunlight. They also help avoid sun damage to your furniture and flooring.

Very Customizable

Blinds are produced in quite a few different kinds of fabrics, colors and patterns. With so many things to choose from, Louver Shop will help you design the best look for your home.
